How did you start your journey?

After 23 years as a professional chef, traveling all over the world cooking in the best restaurants and hotels. I believe food is very personal and should describe you in every bite from the vision of the dish to the complex flavors on your plate, refined and cooked with dedication and love to enhance your guests as well as your experience on the night.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

I left home when I was quite young, and had to get a job. Washing dishes was the only I knew.. I remember looking at the chefs cooking, the pace, the adrenaline, the madness of it all. I was 15 years old, and I was hooked. One day, a chef didn't show up and I said "yeah, I can handle this", and never turned back since. I have seen the world, met the rich and famous people, had some great nights and some really bad ones, but I wouldn't change a thing, I LOVED IT!
